Customer Question
Hello. Our five-year-old son slipped...
Hello. Our five-year-old son slipped and hit his head on the bathroom tile floor two days ago. He didn't lose consciousness or develop a bruise, so we gave him Tylenol and watched him. This evening he complained of a headache in the same location. He otherwise seems fine. Should we take him in to see his pediatrician?

Hello, No need now as his danger period of 48 hours, for any slow bleed inside skull is over. This headache can be usually managed using tylenol and some rest, if he has not vomited and behaves normally otherwise.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
